Proposed Development 65 Pettitts Lane, Dry Drayton, Cambridge, CB23 8BT.

Planning Approval No. S/4554/OL, Condition 12-Contractor’s Compounds 28thJune 2019

 

(We have copied the developers traffic management plan here because the South Cambs Planning site does not make it possible to provide a direct link to the document. To see the original Dean and Dean's Contractor Parking Plan for the site: Go to South Cambs Planning site, and in the "keyword" box, type S/0135/20/DC, then go to the "documents" tab and select "Condition 12 - Site Setup information")

 

This statement is prepared with relevance to condition 12 of the Outline approval for the scheme which states:

 

“No development shall take place until details of the following have been submitted to and approved in writing by the Local Planning Authority:

i) Contractors’ access arrangements for vehicles, plant and personnel;

ii) Contractors’ site storage area(s) and compounds(s);

iii) Parking for contractors’ vehicles and contactors’ personnel vehicles;

Development shall not be carried out other than in accordance with the approved details. (Reason - In the interests of residential amenity in accordance with Policies DP/3 and DP/6 of the adopted Local Development Framework 2007.)”

 

Prior to commencement of the development, our principal considerations are as follows;

 

Prior to commencement of the development, to include any demolition or earth moving the site will be enclosed with protective tree fencing to BS5837:2012 all setting out of the fencing is to be agreed on site with the local planning authority.

 

A set of entrance gates will be installed to the southern boundary of the site, which takes you directly onto Pettitts Lane [sic - this error was pointed out to the planners by a number of objectors] . A solid hoarding will then be formed either side of the site entrance gates to the southern boundary of the site that takes you on to Pettittts Lane [sic - this error was pointed out to the planners by a number of objectors] for security purposes. The hoarding will have mandatory health and safety signs and notification to the public warning of a construction site.

 

The key concerns set out by the planners are to be concluded as below:

 

(i) Contractors’ access arrangements for vehicles, plant and personnel;

 

Our main vehicular access into site is via a tarmacked crossover from Pettitts Lane [sic - this error was pointed out to the planners by a number of objectors] into site and onto a newly formed roadway. The new roadway will need to be formed early on in the construction phase to for a clean access route in / out and also through the site.

 

A pedestrian gate will also be formed within our site hoarding, this will be to the left-hand side of the vehicle gates / access as viewed from Pettitts Lane. The pedestrian access will be completely segregated from the vehicles to compose a safe means of access for pedestrians.

 

(ii) Contractors’ site storage area(s) and compounds(s);

 

The site storage and compound areas on site have been carefully considered to be at locations within the site that are not directly next to any neighboring houses. This is to aid with minimizing any disruption that could potentially be caused to neighboring properties due to vehicles moving materials to and from said locations.

 

The compound areas have been chosen so that they are at either end of the new roadway through site in order to maintain a clean access route for the vehicles moving materials to and from the compound locations.

 

(iii) Parking for contractors’ vehicles and contactors’ personnel vehicles;

 

The contractors parking area is to be formed early on during the construction phase to maintain a segregated area from the construction activities that will be taking place on the site. The location of this area has been chosen to be the furthest point away from general construction activities in order to have a safe means for site personnel to gain access to vehicles.

 

Please refer to attached drawing P007.A - Site Setup Plan for all site set up information. The attached drawing shows and details the locations of the items (i), (ii) and (iii) mentioned above.

 

IN SUMMARY.

 

 

The key areas the plan covers are summarised as follows:

 

We therefore conclude the stated measures are sufficient during the construction phase of the works.
